C. Reider - Inconstant [treetrunk048]
C. Reider (of Vuzh Music & Drone Forest) and Treetrunk Records present "Inconstant". Artist Statement: "I believe the Constant series is one of the most important things going on today among drone / ambient / experimental musicians in the underground, because it amounts to a conversation, a dialogue... each person saying 'Look here's what I think a drone can sound like', and then there are responses to that, and responses to that. "Inconstant" is a subtractive remix of the Constant series, numbers one through twelve. I took each of those twelve drones and filtered as much of the drone out of them as possible. One of the Oblique Strategies says 'Destroy the Most Important Thing' -- when you remove the drone from a drone, what are you left with? It is not the drone, it is the dust shed from the drone. It is not the drone, it is a map of the freckles on the skin of the drone. Thanks to the authors of the first twelve Constants: Mystified, Stephen Philips, the Zen Potato, Ben Summers, Soul in Limbo, Tribe of Astronauts, C.P. McDill, Mystahr and Jon 7. Tracks with CC Non-derivative licenses were used with permission."

Excellent addition to the Constant series
C. Reider has come up with a terrific concept, and the execution of it allows us the see the Constant recordings in a fresh way.
